STEP in the Dominican Republic

This project seeks to send 500 children to schools in San Cristobal, Bani and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

Goal: $15,000

About this Mission Project

$1 a day—that’s all it takes to provide an education for a child in the Dominican Republic. But many families cannot afford the required school uniforms, supplies and monthly fees. Without an education, the future is bleak for their children.

Genesis is a brilliant girl who dreams of going to college. Her father’s salary as a pastor would not be enough to keep her in school—but thanks to STEP, the Student Tuition Expense Program, she is able to attend school every day. She is growing intellectually and is a model for her friends at school and in her church.

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to send 500 children to schools in San Cristobal, Bani and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. $30 per month helps to provide food, a school uniform, shoes, books and school supplies for one student.

This project is managed by IM missionary Madeline Flores-López.

It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall self-esteem, education and future of hundreds of children in the Dominican Republic. An education will help break the cycle of poverty, giving each student the chance at better jobs in the future and improving the overall health and vitality of their communities.
